here goes nothing.... (a different kind of nothing)


well, got a brick today at a swap meet that im goign to try to slope. i doubt itll be much good, but it wont be much of a loss.

i need to re-do the nose, find CG, get gear thatll fly something like this, and wait for a tornado to fly in.

ok quick update, i decided what im going to do with the nose. its really effed up and i need to fix it. i think im going to try fill tha hole with spackle, is that ok? im going to use the lightweight kind to try to save some weight. ill see if i can borrow my sister's bf's camera, its a little better than this one.

Try filling it with balsa block, then sealing it solid with gorilla glue, or spackle otherwise you'll end up with a very nose heavy plane... this does remind me of the beginnings of the true HGN thread

is this a glass or plastic fuse?

If glass put some foam in there to shape and glass over it. Good as new. Balsa works also if that is what you have handy.

flyinazn10 and Here Hoes Nothing


This thread sort of reminds me of the Sienfeld epoisode, The Bizarro Jerry.

This is kind of like an alternate universe, where across the galaxy is Devilscries, and here we have flyinazn10, and one has to use the camera of his mom's BF, and the other one has to use the camera of his sister's BF. It's actually starting to sound more like "BS".

It would be interesting if flyinazn10 builds his plane quickly (using up maybe only 20 posts), he makes it a top-wing, and instead of using cheap EPS, he makes it out of expensive EPP.

Definitely Bizarro Devilscries

I think we should have our resident PhD candidate, Surfimp, come in and give us an explanation on Seinfeld's alternate universe theory. Steve, if you would be so kind...

I just had an idea much better than epp!

This eps thinga would be PERFECT for you to lost-foam the fuse and sheet the flying surfaces! That would make a GREAT psser.

If you wont do it, i'll buy it and do it myself at some point.

not sure, isnt plastic, its foam and HEAVY. its not eps or epp, thats all i know. i could order some EPS, i found a great deal for it, free foam if i order a desktop, should be here soon. i could always keep the eps for something else and go with epp. i tihnk epp comes with furnature, ill order a dining table if thats what i need.

what? i dont get it, use eps for me to lost foam ( ) the fuse. the control surafaces seem plenty strong, the ailerons are ply (i think) and seem pretty strong. the elevator is full stab although it has a ply TE. but mind explaining it to me?

Like I said in my PM, i'm pretty much positive it is spackled EPS. So you can lost foam it.

Then again, as a leadslead (which I'm afraid it is doomed to be), you can always keep the foam and think of it as a permanent ballast that makes it more durable.
